A special screening of People Like Us - a timely and relevant examination of queer life in a small mountain town. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion facilitated by Patty Vadnais and featuring Ryan Collins, Janey Wong, and Jas Clancy.
People Like Us follows Ryan as he connects with the queer community of Revelstoke, seeking their opinions, stories, and relationships with mountain culture in the hope of building perspective into what it is like to be queer in a rural setting. After moving to Revelstoke in 2020 to work in the mountain sports industry, Ryan felt welcomed, building a strong friend group and work opportunities. Despite this warm reception, he started to feel that there was something missing, a connection with people like him. As Ryan actively reaches out to members of the local queer community he begins to build a better understanding of the shared queer experience. In doing so People Like Us celebrates the existence of queer folks in non-urban settings, and show that healthy queer communities can flourish in small towns.
The organisers send a massive thank you to the filmmakers for allowing us to screen People Like Us and their generosity and commitment to #Pride organizations and inclusion in the outdoors and beyond.
